White on white for the Cuddly Buddly challenge, thought I would give it a go!

White on white is very tricky! I used an image from Cuddly Buddly, one of my favourites actually. Mounted him on silver card, slightly distressing the edges with inks. Used my ribbler on some white pearlised paper and attached a satin ribbon. The doily is from my Ornamental Iron 2 cricut cartridge, my favaourite at the moment. I slightly distressed this too. I added 3 pearly buttons and finished it all with some sparkly gems, this was all mounted onto an 8x8" card, hope you like it.

Some lovely Christmas candles with wrap and flowers, and they smell delicious!

Great fun to make,  they smell lovely... I might make some more of these. I used the Ornamental Iron 2, plus Winter Woodland and floral embellishment. Super Duper cartridges, oh and I used my Promarkers, Jones Tones glitter which is the best, and a little diamonte stud ! You can't beat a bit of bling.

Magical and Mystical - butterflies, truly beautiful

My entry into the Polka Doodles challenge, I'm new to this sort of thing, but I really must try to enter it every week, it focuses the mind! I used:
1 x 8x8" card blank
Burgundy background card
Polka Doodles paper from Seasons of Sundae, printed in greyscale
Brown background card
Paper from my stash using Photo vintage distress inks
and using a pretty stamp from Kars on the outside edge
Pretty organza/satin ribon with Grey promarker highlights
2 buttons from stash
Pics from Joanna Sheen's "enchanted dreams " by Josephine Wall.

The whole thing took my an hour. Thanks for looking

A Christmas card, still not sure about it, I used the Florals Embellished cartridge and also the Ornamental Iron 2 cartridge, which is so fab I don't know where to start!!!

Using the straight from the nest cartridge.

A lovely little card, well actually it's 8x8!

Digi stamps, doodling and lots of sticking and glueing

Some more lovely digi stamps from cuddly buddly,  I think these ones were free, the quality is very good, I love the little girls on the mushrooms. Anyway I was thinking of doing a video and posting to You tube to show how some of my cards are put together. I need some courage first though lol!

Baby baby

 I had to make a card for someone at the OH's work, she has just gone into labour, phew, just in the nick of time!  I loved this one, 8x8", using a mixture of Cricut, Polka doodles and faux stitching.

BOO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A spooky card for a special

A quadruple easel card I made for my Mum's 81st birthday, the pic doesn't do it justice really.

Mum was really pleased with my special card to her. It was all cut with my Cricut, I used distress inks too, and lots of glue !!!

Here we go with some more photo's of cards made for St Nicolas Hospice.

Hurrah I loaded some pics !!!!

A huge amount of cards I have recently made for the St Nicolas Hospice in Bury St Edmunds. Some are done with Promarkers, some water colour painting, a right old assortment.

a lovely advent calendar

Made for my Grandchildren, it's A4 size and very strong, so hopefully they will bring it out every year. I'm doing a winnie the pooh one using my new cricut cartridge, so we'll see how it turns out.

Made a lovely card with Bo Bunny papers

I love these papers and colours, I went to Ali Pali at the weekend, it was the Knitting and stitching show, I've been going for about 20 years... well a long time anyway.  I bought some ribbons and buttons there, and couldn't wait to use them, so here they are with my favourite digital stamp.
